I've had numerous heist fails due to me playing with randoms. Since i play on the 360 because i can't afford next gen at the moment, i have no friends to play online with.
I beat Fleeca first try when i was host, only fail i had was when i did it with someone else sometimes i was overheating the drill.
Lets move onto the actual fails.
During the Station mission for The Prison Break, i was doing it with a random, i pulled out the phone and dialed 911, not long after making the call the guy starts shooting people, i couldn't talk to him since my mic is tangled up with other stuff. Got our wanted level as intended to, stole a cop car. But for some strange reason i couldn't lose the cops despite being out of sight, eventually i got frustrated and drove the car into a gas station killing both of us in the process, respawned, stole another cop car, finally lost them. The guy took another police car when he respawned, when i lost the cops 2 minutes later he was alreayd at the station. When i arrived he had the schedule. Completed mission without any other problems.
On the other half of that, while we were doing the stealing back Rashkovsky's car, i was on the top of the ship when we had killed all enemy's on the bottom deck, i thought "Maybe i could jump down, fall and maybe land on another floor?" So i did that, character hit head on a small silo, fell and landed on the tarmac and died instantly, failed setup, restarted, didn't know enemy's were on the top of the ships containers, killed them, stole car, delivered it, mission completed.
While doing Wet Work, i lost the cops, sat in my car at the Planning room while waiting for the City Hall team, didn't show up, so i spectated to find they had cops on them, they lost them and then they went back, one of the City Hall team shot something and got stars again, lost them, came back and mission completed.
While doing Prison Break, Me and the Prison Officer were distracted trying to shoot the NOOSE team, eventually the mission failed with the reason "Target arrived" and i was confused, then i realized what was said. They'd called backup and we hadn't listened.
During the Humane Labs mission where you had to get the codes during a deal, Bodyguard started kicking the car where i was positioned, then one of the Lookout team members shot a bullet at the car and failed the mission.
While trying to escape FIB, i was in a car with a teammate only for another teammate to die and fail again.
Seconds after i was able to steal a car, teammate died, failed yet again.
Teammate died when i tried to protect him, while that happened i suddenly died, it came up "RockyRIGGER10 died" (Gamertag which i really need to get around to changing) when it wasn't my fault for failing the mission.
Heres the kicker, it took me roughly 12 times to complete the Insurgent mission.
First time i did it, got shot all over the place and died by enemies when i tried to snipe them.
Then same thing happened to another teammate.
Believe it or not, one time we failed within 30 seconds. i got on the gunner part of the Insurgent, and then for some reason the driver starts driving all over the place, eventually he overturns the vehicle and i fall out, then he makes the stupidest decision to move the left stick left to flip the vehicle back over, the roof end up crushing me and killing me. Mission failed.
Teammates in the non-turret insurgent died roughly five times, once we were right at the dropoff point.
During the EMP mission (Not Deliver EMP) i died because enemies overpowered me when teammates decided not to protect me
When we stole the jets, two teammates had a mid air collision and ended up failing the mission. I would've got Platinum, but instead i got Bronze.
15 times to complete Deliver EMP mission, it was my fault 4 times because i wasn't able to kill the other guard that was hiding behind the booths.
2 teammates kept going the other way and getting spotted by the vehicle and sometimes by scientists, eventually one of them got frustrated and left the session. Eventually found another group, only failed twice until we got there in the end.
Teammates kept messing around and dying while trying to do the Valkyrie mission. Eventually i found a group that eventually managed to complete the mission after four tries.
While doing the Humane Labs Raid, for some reason, both members of Ground Crew, i was one of them landed, i see another blip to find the Gunner followed us, eventually the chopper exploded, restarted, we land, Gunner followed us again, failed again so i quit and found another crew and did it.
While doing it with another crew, Helicopter pilot decided to leave the session while i was trying to do the Keycard part.
During the Coke mission for Series A, teammates would die over and over and over again.
While escaping, we were spotted by a cop car in which the teammate was unable to avoid it in time, then the other team members hit us with a boat, i tried to shoot the cops but teammate died before i could kill the shotgun cop. Eventually i got frustrated and found another crew, failed twice but got it right on the third try.
Helicopter team would often leave when they couldn't do it.
During the Trash Truck mission, teammates would usually die on the last part, i died when i managed to kill the Ballas that were coming from the North and the West with a minigun, i had no health and i panicked and died trying to take cover, eventually i got fed up and set the difficulty to Normal, beat it without losing no lives.
I was dumb enough to try and kill a security guard with a baseball bat, when i hit him. For some reason it hit the wall and not him, then he killed me.
On the bikers mission, i was trying to protect my driver because we were infront of a Lost MC van with them shooting out the back, i killed one of the members, a second after killing one of the backseat shooters the van abruptly exploded and killed us in the process, I would've got Platinum but i got bronze because i couldn't kill anyone when we got it right.
While i was trying to take out two people with a Combat PDW i ended up shooting the trailer and failing the setup.
When we were escaping on one restart, i shot Lost members coming at us, then it said "SETUP FAILED, You alerted the Lost" How do you alert Lost members that are chasing after you?
Here's an embarrassing one. Seconds after starting the Weed mission, the team abruptly left when we walked out the apartment, it said "Heist Crew left" and then i got disconnected from Xbox Live.
Team were often stupid enough to kill themselves, one team member blew himself up, and one part saw one of the Ground team decide to not drive over the bridge but drive off a cliff, eventually he died when we were nearly at the warehouse.
During the Meth mission, the tanker blew up just as we got it, and instead i got Bronze instead of Platinum.
Now onto Series A.
First time, teammate decided to use the turret on the Technical, that mean't i had to drive the stupid Mule van, they went way ahead of us, and because they were way ahead they couldn't really do anything, a enemy Balla's SUV came up to me, blew it up, another one came, shot me dead in the drivers seat.
I was stupid enough to shoot a NPC in the lane next to us resulting in his car exploding, it slid into our lane, driver was dumb enough not to avoid it and hit and the vehicle overturned and i fell out. Seconds later one of the van drivers died.
One van member killed himself for some reason it came up "Player committed suicide" What i thought was he either blew himself up on accident or decided to bail from the vehicle, fall down a overpass and die.
Eventually, i got fed up and quit.
Came back a few hours later with another crew, failed once because i was left helpless with Trevor trying to fend off the O'Neils, Ballas, and Lost MC. Aced it on the 2nd try. And thankfully, because i got to play with the turret i retained my Platinum medal.
Pacific Standard Job.
During the photographing the post vans, failed once because other driver alerted a van driver. In fact, that team photographed every single van, and my navigator wouldn't guide me because he didn't have a mic.
Disconnected from two setup crews twice for some reason at the very start of the mission. No, i wasn't disconnected from Xbox Live, everybody just left for some reason until the job finally worked on the third try, aced it without any fails.
Waited for people to join for a good hour while having to kick low-levels. Eventually found a level 366 called ii Sully x, then along came a level 126 called Hippie Time69 and finally a level 356 called digala 2017. While in the clothing section, teammate decided to leave, wasted an hour waiting for a good setup crew. Found another crew within five minutes. Sully joined back, one team member decided not to go to the van and attack the rival heist crew, we were almost done when one of the setup crew is shot dead by the guy standing on the stairwell, then he decides to leave the job. I honestly hate people who do a job, then they die so they're like "This jobs too hard, screw this crew i'm quitting" Then i went to find another crew, Sully joins again. Sully dies twice when he tries to kill everyone but the guy above the stairwell killed him twice, he quits, so then i decide to set the difficulty to normal. Found another crew, Sully didn't join this time, failed job once because one was killed by the stairwell guy which i killed with a grenade, and another one got killed by the enemies that were at the vans. Restarted, killed stairwell guy with a RPG, stole the vans. Delivered the white van, mission completed.
Found a suitable crew, went to attack the convoy. Within roughly 30 seconds somebody thought he could be The Terminator and jumped out of cover and got killed so we reset, used our cars as cover, when i was trying to snipe the jeep driver, it started shifting the truck making it collide with a concrete block, now the truck was lying on its rear and its front wheels sitting on the top of the bridges beam, eventually several Merryweather jeeps exploded, causing the truck to explode.
One of the players quit, so i went to find a new crew. Another suitable one, not long after starting and not even at the bridge somebody committed suicide so we had to start again. Got there, did the same tactic, use cars as cover and form a wall, attacked convoy. Took truck, teammate decided to blow up my armoured Kuruma, then another teammate died. Had to attack convoy again. Had to call MMI first to get my Kuruma back free of charge, then stupid retarded teammate fired a rocket at it and destroyed it again, so i had to call MMI yet again. this time two went to the next bridge and we didn't notice. When they attacked, we got there, killed all Merryweather guards. I hopped in the turret on the Insurgent, took down pursuing choppers, then it comes up "Player committed suicide" so then we had to start over YET AGAIN. Had to kill a SUV driver so another guy could steal it, he goes to the next bridge like last time, i don't notice, he attacks them, i head up as quickly as i can to offer help. We kill all guards, then the truck driver dies within 5 seconds of me getting on the turret again, i went f*** it, and quit. Tried this with two other groups, they kept dying for being retards, so i quit in frustration again. Put it on Normal for the 3rd time and found a crew i was unsure about, however they killed all the enemies, escaped and delivered, mission completed and now i can breathe a sigh of relief.
Sometimes i wish high-levels knew what to do, not just be complete idiots and try to ruin the mission.
After roughly waiting half an hour for the Rockstar Cloud servers to work so i could do the Bikers mission with no luck and resetting the console, i eventually managed to access the heists and do the last setup mission, found a good crew. Got there and within 20 seconds two people died, some person and me. Reset and spawned down the street, shot the two bikers at the motorcycle and then another teammate died. One last reset, same thing happens, team get overpowered. Then somebody quits when we reset on the 4th try. And surprise surprise, the Rockstar Cloud servers go down again, so i had to call it a day.
Come back on after a few days, and find a crew. I die on the first attempt because somebody decides to drive their armored kuruma in and i end up getting gangbanged by bullets because other two teammates are going 10 miles an hour and are nowhere near the Lost MC Clubhouse.
The second try, we get the bikes. Guy called ArmouredDuck420 dies within 15 seconds.
Third try, other teammate dies, i blow myself up by accident.
Fourth try, another teammate dies.
Fifth try, teammate dies and i'm almost at the destination for the dropoff, i rage quit.
Found another crew, didn't put it on Normal, cleared house, delivered bikes, aced it. Afterwards, one of the teammates shot me and another guy until the other guy shot that person.
The Pacific Standard Job Heist.
We all exit the apartment, then i end up being stuck in the animation of where you get into a car, and suddenly everyone's name changes to "PLAYER LEFT" and then the heist fails because the crew left.
Rockstar then throws me messages saying i can't play because files won't download and the game services are unavailable.
So then, i try again.
Get out of the bank, shoot cops. I die, since everybody is doing something else.
Second try, get out of bank, shoot cops, crowd control member dies.
Third try, get out of bank, shoot cops, crowd control member dies again.
Fourth try, get out of bank, shoot cops. one of the crowd control members thinks its a convenient time to quit, and fails it for us.
I called it a day after that.
Second attempt at the heist.
Get out of bank, shoot cops, get to bikes, i get rammed off mine by a cop car, i ditch the bike and steal the cop car. Tire gets shot out, Sheriff SUV's appear, not far from canyon, i crash, NOOSE from Sheriff SUV's kills me. Somebody quits
Third try (Difficulty set to Normal)
Get out of bank, shoot cops, get to bikes, drive with another person, get rammed off bike by another cop car, get swarmed by police and NOOSE. Kill all cops, jack police cruiser like last time, Sheriffs appear again, cop car gets damaged and loses a tire like last time, narrowly avoid death by NOOSE. Crowd Control member dies somehow, 0 team lives, drive up canyon while narrowly avoiding driving off the cliff, bail from cop car, parachute to Dinghy, land. Get out of the area, heist completed.
Oddly enough, i didn't get my All In Order challenge completed, is that because i did it on Normal? I didn't join any other heists that would result in it being reset.
